morning, late-night hours when the burglary is suspected to have happened. looks like they came through a grass door of the business and defeated the alarm system and motion sensors and went for the atm and cut in to the machine to get the money getting aundetected. >> they knew what they were looking for and came right at it. >> staff went about putting in a new atm and there are upgrades to the security, as well. in his 19 years here it's been nothing like this. police say it is rare for crystal city, too. >> they said there was some incidents in maryland but nothing around here. >> arlington police are still investigating this robbery. derrick ward, news 4. a popular pizza place in old town alexandria back open after a small fire this morning. firefighters were called to bugsy's pizza restaurant & sports around 9:00 this morning for an issue with the restaurant's heating and air conditioning system. the restaurant was closed most
of the day until building inspectors gave them the green light to reopen. there's no serious damage and no one was hurt. time for a check on the forecast. look at the way we started the day. this is joint base andrews where president obama was boarding air force one. can you see him there? a foggy morning. let's go to storm team 4 meteorologist chuck bell. we got rid of the fog but the gray skies? >> little bit. we saw little sunshine from time to time. the clouds won today. no doubt about it but you probably noticed the south wind brought in warmer air and noticeably waerm humidity. the humidity and warm air led to one or two lonesome hours at the intersection of routes 50 and 301 over downtown maryland right now. on in the wider view that's the only game in the immediate metro area. more showers in to saint mary's county. temperatures warmed up today. low to mid-70s in the metro area.

>> reporter: fairfax county owned the complex since 2006. the majority of the residents here are low-income families. >> we love this community. we want to stay here. we don't want to move. >> reporter: with the construction of the silver line moving forward, this area is becoming more and more pop lampl fairfax county is close to naming a developer who will tear down 180 units now standing here and replace them with as many as 900 new apartments. while the new development will have affordable housing, many of the people now living here won't qualify. >> people will have to make about $63,000 a year to live here. they make $43,000 a year on average. we are talking 80% of the residents will have to move out. >> i love reston. >> we love this place and don't want to move from here. >> erica, i just got off the phone with sharon with the fairfax county board of supervisors. she tells me that she has signed a letter that is going out toefr

from exercising their first amendment rights. that's what is at the heart of this. >> we have seen this play book from the republicans before. what they want to do is try to drag washington in to a swamp of partisan fishing expeditions, trumped up hearings and false allegations. >> reporter: the president and ceo of the associated press says the record seizure has already made sources less willing to talk to journalists. the president is trying to stay away from controversy if that is possible. we will hear what he told graduates at atlanta's morehouse college. also today, a somber graduation ceremony for students at hofstra university after new revelations about a shooting that killed a snun
